Mac OS X is currently enjoying its most successful spell to date with Apple reaping the benefits that come attached with the current surge in user adoption. However, Microsoft is also reporting a recent surge in profits that has a lot to do with the success of Windows 8. If you are a PC user, then it could be worthwhile checking out the iOS inspired theme which is now available for both Windows 8 and Windows 7 installations. Themes or Skin packs have often caused a great deal of division with PC users. Some individuals prefer to stay to the native look and feel of their operating system. On the other hand, there are some users who love the functionality provided with Windows but crave the visuals of OS X and iOS.
The theme itself is named after Apple’s famous mobile operating system but it’s immediately evident that inspiration has also been taken from the fruit company’s desktop software. Downloading and installing the iOS 6 inspired visuals on Windows is fairly straightforward and involves little more than running through a standard installation process. It is however worth noting that uninstalling themes or skin packs of this nature can sometimes prove to be a little problematic. If anything goes wrong, require a full operating system restore. Make sure you create a restore point in System Restore utility before going ahead with the install.
Once the theme is installed, users will find themselves with a severe visual change from what they have been previously used to. The famous OS X Dock makes a rather front and center appearance, with battery, calendar, menu and other visuals all immediately looking like iOS 6 / OS X.
Subtle changes like the inclusion of application type icons and themed directory folders makes this a worthy installation.
